Slow laptop

I have just paid good money to have our laptop clean up. Its slow.
Is there any advise out there for me to speed it up my self?

No offence, but can you not gauge the skill level of the OP based on their post and then realise that your advise is really not helpful?

Anyway madoof1 - what brand/model is your computer? And what did you pay to get done?

In the first instance you should probably make contact with the techs.

If you still want to do this yourself some preliminary info/checks needed
1. model specs of machine
2. download and install hdsentinel to get an idea of the hdd status - needs to be 100% ideally - http://www.hdsentinel.com/ 3 download scan and clean with https://toolslib.net/downloads/viewdownload/1-adwcleaner/

we've done the Linux Vs Windows thing many times before - most of the regulars are well versed with linux.
